Nymeo Federal Credit Union Provides Over 70,000 Meals to Frederick Families Through Its $wipe Out Hunger Program

gbafNews28

FREDERICK, Md., Nov. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Nymeo Federal Credit Union has a mission to end hunger, specifically childhood hunger. For the past six years, the credit union has been underwriting a special program developed with the Maryland Food Bank's School Pantry Program called $wipe Out Hunger. This past fiscal year, Nymeo's support has provided approximately 70,350 meals in the form of groceries to children and families in Frederick County, including fresh produce and meat.

“Our $wipe Out Hunger program is unique. When our members swipe their Nymeo debit cards, they help to feed families in our community,” said Nymeo President and CEO Victoria Johnston. “With each swipe, our credit union then donates ½ cent to the Frederick County Food Bank's School Pantry Program every month. We are proud to announce that this year, we've contributed over $11,500.”

Nearly 1 in 4 Marylanders face food insecurity, and over 200,000 are children. With the onset of COVID-19, food insecurity is increasing, and the need is greater than ever.
“At the Maryland Food bank, we believe that how we address child hunger today will determine the health of our community's decades from now. But we can't do this work alone,” said Megan Davis, Maryland Food Bank Grants Manager. “With Nymeo by our side, we'll be able to continue to develop innovative solutions to do more for Maryland's hungry children.”

During the past fiscal year, Maryland Food Bank distributed more than 84,400 pounds of staple groceries to 10 School Pantry Sites in Frederick County, equating to 1 meal per 1.2 pounds. The schools that Nymeo supported through the program includes Ballenger Creek Elementary, Catoctin High School, Crestwood Middle, Emmitsburg Elementary, Hillcrest Elementary, Lincoln Elementary, North Frederick Elementary, Thurmont Middle, Wavery Elementary, and Whittier Elementary.

Aside from creating and managing the $wipe Out Hunger program, Nymeo staff receives paid time to volunteer monthly in the community, including disseminating items at the food pantry locations. Nymeo recently created and promoted an online food drive, encouraging members and the community to support efforts virtually this year and raised over $2000 for the Food Bank.

McAfee Transforms Security Operations With Launch of Industry First Proactive XDR for Endpoint, Cloud and Network

gbafNews28

McAfee Corp. (Nasdaq: MCFE) today announced the general availability of MVISION Extended Detection and Response (XDR) with inclusion of Cloud, and network telemetry, unifying and optimizing threat detection and response beyond endpoints to allow for faster, more proactive investigation cycles, easier, automated response and continued modernization of todays security operations centers (SOC).

According to Enterprise Strategy Group1 research, more than 80 percent of organizations are planning increased investment in threat detection and response solutions, affirming the heightened need to safeguard against todays crowded threat landscape. Specifically, more than two-thirds of organizations surveyed expect to make an XDR investment in the next 6-12 months and nearly half (48 percent) would be willing to replace individual controls with integrated XDR solutions.

Organizations can no longer afford ineffective disparate threat and response tools and context, said Jon Oltsik, senior principal analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. With XDR, we are seeing an opportunity to take the SOC as we know it to the next level “ moving from operating in a time and resource intense reactive manner with existing, disparate tools to using a comprehensive and integrated XDR solution that can not only proactively predict mal-activity, but also help drive faster remediation decisions with automation.

Security teams are struggling to replace reactive, manual and time-consuming investigation processes to combat more sophisticated and more frequent attacks “ all while trying to decrease the cost and complexity of overall management, said Shishir Singh, chief product officer, McAfee. MVISION XDR provides proactive and actionable context across key vectors to simplify, accelerate and automate threat validation and response across the enterprise thereby making the most of SOC resources and mitigating potential disruption to the business.

Gartner, Inc., leading research and advisory firm2 states, XDR offerings are a natural evolution of endpoint detection and response (EDR) platforms, which have become a primary incident response tool for security teams. The primary value propositions of an XDR product are to improve security operations productivity and enhance detection and response capabilities by including more security components into a unified whole that offers multiple streams of telemetry, presenting options for multiple forms of detection and concurrently enabling multiple methods of response.

With MVISION XDR now available, McAfee is directly improving the SOC experience. By granting analysts greater control and a more comprehensive view of threat context beyond the endpoint, they can save time and act more deliberately with a better understanding of threats “ before they occur or incur damage. MVISION XDR provides:

  • Proactive and Actionable Intelligence: The included MVISION Insights helps to proactively prioritize threats, implement countermeasures and prescribe the right actions to be taken.
  • AI-Guided Investigations: Simplify investigations across sophisticated threat campaigns with AI-guided investigations, MITRE ATT&CK mapping and real-time hunting.
  • Cloud threat integration: Provides context for web activity and a more comprehensive overview of an attack, including improving visibility of any additional vectors of access or command of control.
  • Network telemetry prioritization: Offers a better understanding of network threats by automatically correlating with curated threats for improved prioritization and determination of counter measures to take.
  • SOC Infrastructure Optimization: Maximize return on SOC investment by integrating with existing SOC Infrastructure like ticketing systems and Secure Orchestration Automation Response (SOAR) tools for more efficient automation and faster mitigation.

McAfee MVISION XDR is available now. For more information, visit McAfee MVISION XDR.

DIC and Jindal Poly Films Reached a Consensus to Collaborate in the Area of Functional CPP Films in India

gbafNews28

DIC Corporation (TOKYO: 4631) has for some time been exploring the possibility of an alliance with Indias Jindal Poly Films Limited, one of the worlds largest manufacturers of biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film, with the aim of helping to foster a market for functional cast polypropylene (CPP) film in India. Today, DIC announced that the two companies have reached a consensus to collaborate in this area.

India, like other countries, is experiencing a greater need for products with performance features that respond better to environmental concerns and sanitation issues. In the food packaging field, demand is increasing for films with performance features that meet such needs. Of particular note, demand for functional CPP film, which contributes to the realization of reducing plastics, mono-material packaging, is expected to expand in the future.

Anticipating growth in the Indian market for CPP film, Jindal Poly Films entered this business in 2018, at which time it also approached DIC to propose collaboration. Having determined that working with Jindal Poly Films would be an important first step in nurturing demand in the promising Indian market, DIC explored the proposal in detail.

Collaborative initiatives in the following three spheres are under consideration by the two companies, with concrete activities expected to commence within fiscal year 2021 at the earliest:

  • Entering into a technology licensing agreement whereby DIC would extend packaging technologies to Jindal Poly Films;
  • Developing and mass-producing functional CPP film using DIC technologies at Jindal Poly Films plant in India; and
  • Conducting joint sales of functional CPP film manufactured by Jindal Poly Films in India with a view to establishing a joint venture.

Through this business, DIC has sought to provide value to society through the improvement of environmental performance, i.e., by making films thinner to reduce plastic use, and enhancing performance features such as easy peel, which makes packaging easier to open.

Amid growing sustainability-related needs, DIC aims to expand its films business by capitalizing on this collaboration with Jindal Poly Films to introduce advanced technologies cultivated in Japan to the Indian market, which is expected to see significant growth going forward.
